we all need to hear. >> really appreciate it. heather: you live in venezuela so you know what socialism is like. tell us about that. >> my dad is a construction worker, one of the hardest guys i have ever known. he moved the family all over the country and all over the world. one of those places was venezuela. this was 1998 just before hugo chavez took power and it was a beautiful country, the wealthiest country in south america and it was 20 years later when i was working in the state department i was in the region leading a humanitarian mission with malicious organizations of the united nations to try to figure out how to provide basic things like food and medication to these people indeed. you have to million people flee venezuela and what is amazing is
those 20 short years, wasn't a natural disaster or war or conflict, simply the failure of socialist ideology which let the people of venezuela down. there was a religious leader i met with, a catholic bishop who said when chavez took over he said we were told we gave him a little bit of our freedom and get x amount of security in return and now we have neither. think about those words and they stick with me every day. heather: you took us through a little bit of the timeline on the rise of socialism in venezuela. we know the poverty rate is 90% but then new hampshire, bernie sanders winning overwhelmingly in a 45.7%, a lot of folks argue pete buttigieg who came in second has a lot of socialist ideas as well even though they are selling him as a moderate. what does that say to you in
terms of democrats and where the party is headed? >> whether it is sanders or buttigieg they are all embracing the same concepts, all following the lead of aoc and the socialist squad. my opponent votes with aoc 95% of the time, representing the state of new hampshire, it is our slogan and state motto and he is voting with crazy socialist ideas. i don't think any of them are doing it because they are bad people, i just don't think they know any better. we have seen this experiment fail before, failed the people of venezuela, failed millions around the world, take venezuela as an example. it led to the average person's loss of 25 pounds per person. people don't have access to food, medicine, because the government took more and more of their freedom.
heather: in terms of some of bernie sanders's proposals, what you are talking about, medicare for all, free college, housing for everyone and it sounds great, a romanticized idea about socialism. >> one of the reasons i am running as i have seen this firsthand traveling around the world, donald trump's state department, i am running against freshman democrats, we are going to keep taking this message out there. you can join us. this is so important that my generation speak out about how socialism has failed so many people around the world and we can embrace american ideals of liberty and freedom not just for the country but those around the globe. heather: thank you for joining us. we appreciate your time. a dose of reality for folks, have a good weekend.
